MasterFixIt :

but it will be in the form of Q & A

MasterFixIt :

it actually better anyway

Customer:

ok , but is it worth fixing??

MasterFixIt :

Yes it sure is, the motors fail on occasion because of all the dust that get into them. But I robot has made the replacements better:-)

MasterFixIt :

more dust filtering for the motors

MasterFixIt :

I would really change them both

MasterFixIt :

but just the one will do the trick

Customer:

ok I,ll see the cost and decide

Customer:

how do I contact you for further assist if required??

Customer:

do the wheel modules themselves include the "motor"like 3 screws to replace
